CCEEers Take Flight

Happy Birthday, Liz!!!
The fabulous Liz Williams is back as the CCEE Stampers Challenge hostess this week.  Here is her challenge for all of us.....
Tomorrow is my (Liz's) birthday,  and also Orville Wright's. Franklin D. Roosevelt issued a proclamation to make it National Aviation Day, to honor Orville Wright. I thought it would be fun to hunt down an image of something man has made fly in the air. It might be an airplane, helicopter, rocket, jet, or hot air balloon. If none of these are available to you, how about a kite or a simple birthday balloon? Our bonus can be to make it a birthday card!!!
I have to be honest and say that I forgot about the bonus to make this a b'day bonus for me.....
I have been trying to use some of my virgin stamping supplies.  Today I managed to use three.....the Spellbinders hot air balloon die, the frame die (not sure of companu), and the red tartan paper from Joanna Sheen.  I also used a cloud template to create the sky, a Stampscape tree stams for the tree tops, and added a sentie from Memory Box to finish it off.
Be sure to see all the creative 'flying' creations from this fabulously friendly and talented team at the CCEE Blog.

Crazies Go to School

Jessie is our hostess for August.  Here is her challenge for the Crazy4Challenge team AND YOU for this week

 It’s back to school time, so make a treat for your kid going back to school, a present for their teacher, or anything back to school related.

I used a tiny set from Studio 112 to create this CAS/one layer card.  I finished the edges with a frame embossing folder, after coloring the apple.  Must say my Misti came in handy to get a crisp and very black image/sentiment print.

Be sure to check out the other school related creations at the Crazies Blog.

CCEE Goes Fishing

I apologize for the 'flash' effect, making the lower edge a bit bright.
Liz continues as our CCEE Stampers Challenge with week.  Here is her challenge......
Hi, It's Liz again with this week's challenge. The month of August is National Catfish Month. Fishing is a year round sport and hobby around where I live, especially saltwater fishing. So, for the challenge this week, find a fish, or someone fishing and it might make a perfect masculine card for your stash!!
I used a fav stamp from 100 Proof Press.  Just love this fishing silhouette stamp.  I heat embossed the image and then sponging on the water and sky colors.  After doing that I realized how well the colors matched one of my tartan plaid papers from Joanna Sheen.  I added a touch of black, a bit of piercing, and a sentiment from MFT.
Be sure to stop in to see the other fab creations at the CCEE Blog.
Once again I had Blogger issues this weekend, so I am late in sharing my Crazy4Challenges card once again.
(I will be going back to 'fill in color' in a couple of spots on the petals.  My peepers were
obviously not working well that day.)

Sisterhood with the CCEE

Liz is our CCEE Stampers' hostess for August.  Here is her challenge for this week.
 As many of you know, or perhaps you don’t, Lynn and Liz are sisters. When they were asked to join the CCEE team at the same time, theyboth thought it would be fun to be doing this together. So, for your sister card, find an image of a pair or group of ladies or girls who just might be sisters doing things that sisters like to do.
I used an image from Penny Black.  Love the way the two girls are embracing.  Tells of friendship or kinship.  I added a sentiment from Hero Arts.  On the vertical panel I used an old SU bkgd. stamps and then added some brads to the main panel.  I finished it off with a bit of piercing.
Be sure to visit the CCEE Stampers Blog to see the fab 'sistahs' creations by the multi-talented and oh so special members of the CCEE team.
I am sharing an extra card from when my Blogger wasn't cooperating so I never posted it here. was done for a Crazy4Challenges challenge.

The CCEE at the Beach

Joanne here with your third CCEE Stampers Challenge for July.....

July, for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere,
is one of our warmest months.
 When I think of hot days, I think of the beach.
  Let’s create cards that honor beaches in some way.

Once again (sorry) I forgot to write down the companies for the stamps I used, so just ask if you need to know.  I stamped the beach, then created the water and sky with sponging.  I heat embossed the sentiment,  Piercing was added and that is about it......

If you join in, please add a link to your card in a comment on the CCEE Blog..
 If posting on splitcoaststampers,
 please add CCEE1629 to keywords.
